Earlier this year, in the winter months, I posted about our lovely park. All the trees were barren but still beautiful. Here's a reminder:
Now, after a week of rain and warmer weather the park has transformed into what I knew it would. . . and it is simply beautiful:
Just as the park has been transformed into something beautiful, we likewise can transform into something more refined. As we live our mortal life, we are presented challenges. The way we meet and handle these problems will define what we are to become. Each decision we make will lead us down a path that will present other issues. Do we take the easy way, which will ultimately lead us down a dark path. Or do we take the more difficult way, the right way, that will lead us back to our Heavenly Father. Life is full of challenges, some more difficult than others, but we have the gift of repentance so that we may be forgiven and start again.
